This video captures Nick Batt’s take on the new Korg MS-20 Kit.
The MS-20 Kit is a true-analog, 1:1 scale reissue of the MS-20, with both filters built in (the more aggressive early production filter and more mellow late production one). Every details has been replicated, right down to the packaging, which includes a letter from the original MS-20 engineers and the President of Korg, Inc.
Batt notes that the new MS-20 has the same electronics as the MS-20 mini, but offers “much higher build quality”. It also offers two filter options, to match two generations of filters in vintage MS-20s. See Batt’s post at Sonic State for more of his thoughts on the new MS-20 Kit.
The MS-20 Kit is a being released as a limited edition product.
